Twitch Prime Subscribers Will Soon Get Ads

Twitch Prime Subscribers Will Soon Get Ads

This change will take effect on September 14, 2018 for new Twitch Prime members. You can still use your Prime subscription on any channel, but this won't disable ads on that channel unless the streamer has ad-free viewing for subscribers turned on.

In a blog post published on Twitch's website, the company revealed that they would be rolling back their ad-free service.

Two years after the perk was introduced to Amazon Prime members, Amazon has announced that it will be discontinuing its 20 percent preorder discount on physical copies of video games on August 28. If you have an annual subscription or if you upgrade to one before September 14, you will get ad-free viewing until your next renewal date.

"Advertising is an important source of support for the creators who make Twitch possible", the Amazon subsidiary said. While Twitch Prime will still give away indie games to subscribers each month, as well as access to special emotes, the key value - watching Twitch without ads - has been removed. Instead of offering a 20-percent discount on game pre-orders, Amazon will now offer its paying Prime members a $10 credit towards future orders. You can activate your Twitch Prime subscription after getting on Amazon Prime - you can go for a free Amazon Prime trial here. "We want Twitch to remain a place where anyone can enjoy one-of-a-kind interactive entertainment, and ads allow us to continue making Twitch the best place for creators to build communities around the things they love and make money doing it".

Jon Tester’s Campaign Disavows Pearl Jam Poster with Dead Donald Trump
In a Twitter post on Pearl Jam's official account on Tuesday, a separate image includes notes from Ament about the poster concept. If anyone thinks Pearl Jam are going to do the opposite of Tom Petty and back down from this, they don't know them very well.

To no one's surprise, some users are upset and pointing out that the ad-free viewing experience has been a central benefit to the whole program.

Like many people, I suspect, I have Twitch Prime because I have Amazon Prime.

All other Twitch Prime benefits, like monthly channel subs, monthly games and loot, and chat badges are not changing. Thank you for your support.
